Addictions and Mental Health
Alberta Health Services

This time of year many people just want to crawl under their bed covers and hibernate until May.  It’s the season when we ask ourselves “Why do I live here?”  The winter blues are not uncommon.  We have very short days and little sunshine.  But what if it is more than that?  What if it is Seasonal Affective Disorder, a form of Depression?  How can you tell?
